There are few injuries more dangerous and more difficult to detect and diagnose than that of the spinal cord and column. Over 12,000 Americans suffer spinal cord injuries every year, with 42% of these resulting from car accidents and nearly 27% from falls. Injury to this most crucial part of the body can result in a myriad of complications from digestive dysfunction to sexual dysfunction, difficulty regulating vital statistics, and degenerative diseases such as osteoporosis. In the wake of a car accident or other mishap, understanding these injuries and knowing what to do can prevent debilitating long-term damage and protect you from becoming one of the over 200,000 Americans who live with SCI.
Minor Accidents, Major Injuries
The amount of force required to cause considerable damage to the spinal cord can be surprisingly small. Whether through direct impact or residual whiplash, damage to the vertebrae and soft tissue can lead to excruciating pain, discomfort, and incapacitation. As a result, another party’s minor oversight or carelessness can cause an accident that leaves you suffering physical debilitation, loss of wages, absence from loved ones, and hospital time. The average treatment period for spinal injuries is 12 days of hospitalization and 37 days of rehabilitation. As surely now as ever, few can accommodate such absence from daily responsibilities and obligations.
